Road Rage

Can I just say that some people are absolute assholes?

I just about got killed on the highway by some macho asshole who apparently had nothing better to do with his time than try to piss me off.

I was driving about 70 in the fast lane during the tail-end of rush hour traffic, when this butt-hole in the carpool lane crosses the double yellow line to merge into my lane, with about 3 inches to spare between his rear fender and the front of my car. So I brake and honk my horn at him and he has the audacity to flip me off! Then he starts driving slowly so I try to pass him and what does he do? He cuts me off again. So then I try to move back into the fast lane and the fucker cuts me off AGAIN. By this time I've figured he's not just dumb, he's actually trying to piss me off. So I wait for a car in the next lane to pass me and come even to him so I can try to get around him without letting him in, but it didn't work. He still cut me off! By now I'm just about livid. So I waited until the lanes on both sides were clear, I turned on my right blinker and as he moved into the right lane and I quickly moved into the left and took off so he couldn't catch up. Bastard.

Whew. I'm not normally such a bitch on the road, but this guy pissed me off and all I wanted to do was get away from him.

That's horrible!

I've had some moments like that on the road, where people are just out of control. It makes you understand why some people take a baseball bat to the taillights - or the faces - of these obscene drivers. Road rage is an interesting thing. I find that I get a little ragey in traffic, which is usually where you see the most ass-clownish behavior.
